Shaun White Wins His 3rd Gold Medal

On Tuesday, February 13, Shaun White made history by winning Team USA’s 100th gold medal. White performed the unthinkable by beating Ayumu Hirano in his third and final run. Shaun White performed back to back 1440’s followed back to back 1220’s beating Hirano’s score of 95.25, taking the gold. His final score was 97.75 an almost perfect run, making him the champion of the men’s half pipe. He collapsed to his knees in tears after the announcer called his final score that beat Hirano. In the previous years, Shaun has not had the best of luck since he won his previous gold medal. In the 2014 Sochi  Olympics he received a 4th place and shortly after in New Zealand, he received a head injury that required 62 stitches. This is an amazing victory for Shaun White, who is returning as the king of snowboarding and of the half pipe.
